Jefferson Berry and the UAC

Philadelphia, PA

Jefferson Berry combines storytelling in the Urban Folk tradition with the intricacies of JamBand and Roots instrumentation. These songs are performed by a cadre of unique players: The Urban Acoustic Coalition, a band anchored by the virtuosity of Bud Burroughs, Dave Brown and Marky B! Berkowitz.  While acoustic by nature, never missing is the locked-in bass/drums drive of Uncle Mike and Adam Stranburg. Complementing all this with a variety of guitar styles, Berry’s projects bring a danceable style and contemporary point of view to a unique wing of Philadelphia’s local music scene.

Filling venues with a coalition of three to seven players, UAC shows are a dynamic performance of songs about the city. Jefferson has produced four records in the past four years: Double Deadbolt Logic, Soon!, Dreams of Modern Living and Prairie Fire.
